Following a stellar response from critics and fans alike and a hefty box office figure of $745,570,770 million, 20th Century Fox and the filmmakers behind ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ are currently hard at work on the film’s follow-up, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’ It has been noted number of times that ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ will focus primarily on the returning cast members from ’X-Men: First Class,’ which includes Michael Fassbender’s Magneto, James McAvoy’s Charles Xavier (McAvoy says he’s going bald for the film, “I’ll be older in this one…. [And] I think I’m losing my hair finally. And, yeah, that’s kind of all I know.”), Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique, and Nicholas Hoult’s Beast, in addition to some younger versions of other mutants like the previously-teased Gambit and Nightcrawler (although they’re both unconfirmed at this point). Gambit’s only big-screen appearance to date was in ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine,’ where he was played by Taylor Kitsch. Nightcrawler was played by Alan Cumming in ‘X2.’ While still unconfined, it looks as if Gambit will be played by Channing Tatum in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse.’
